First we bait and live trap skunks in the skunk-occupied areas of your home and property. Once that’s done, we focus our attention on preventative measures – we place more traps around your home, install deep fences, and give you tips on how to discourage their return. We believe MiteBuster's integrated skunk removal system is the most efficient and cost-effective method you’ll find in NJ. MiteBuster’s skunk removers in NJ know how to stop these pests from taking over the underworld.
Of all the rabies cases reported in 2006, 21.5% were caused by skunks. They are not normally aggressive, so if one seems so, it probably has rabies and you need it to be removed as soon as possible. Most predators avoid skunks, but house pets are not as savvy about what the little skunk is capable of, and many are the stories of dogs stinking for weeks from a negative encounter.
Some signs of skunks near your home are:
Skunks mellow a lot in the winters, but they don’t go into full hibernation mode. They can be somewhat useful in that they eat garden grubs, mice and the occasional mole, but the chances of your pets receiving a finely directed spray are high. Skunks also love your crawl spaces, open garage and shed doors and hollow trees; and if you have land with outbuildings, long grass and a henhouse with an ongoing supply of eggs, they will think themselves in Utopia.
Maybe you’ve put up chicken mesh, fenced off openings, locked your trash can and fitted some LED lights to the wall, but theskunks don’t seem to care. Alternatively, you could turn the problem over to us. We have years of experience doing this kind of pest control, and our certified skunk removal specialists are ready for your call.
